Trigger Guard Stabilizer

Abstract

A trigger guard stabilizer for a holster provides trigger guard side-to-side support. Because the trigger guard stabilizer is spring-loaded, and can be depressed into a receiving pocket, it automatically moves downward out of the way if a taller light passes over the stabilizer top during a holstering action. Once the light has passed over the stabilizer, the stabilizer springs back into a position with portions that extend on either side of the trigger guard. This helps to hold the trigger guard centered laterally in the holster, thus impeding unwanted access to the trigger.

Abstract

A holster, for a pistol that has a top portion and that has a bottom portion including a trigger guard, includes a holster body having a top portion and a bottom portion fixed in position relative to the top portion. The holster body defines a chamber in the holster body for receiving a portion of the pistol. The holster body is made of two holster body pieces that are joined together to form the holster body defining the chamber. The holster also includes a plurality of different pistol retention devices each of which is configured to be mounted inside the chamber of the holster body between the at least two holster body pieces. Each one of the plurality of devices has a mounting portion for securing the device in the chamber of the holster body and having a trigger guard engagement portion for releasably engaging the trigger guard of the pistol. The mounting portions of the plurality of devices are substantially identical to each other whereby any selected one of the plurality of devices can be similarly mounted in a working position inside the chamber of the holster body. The trigger guard engagement portions of the plurality of devices are substantially different from each other thereby to properly releasably engage different pistols having different trigger guards. As a result, the one holster body can accommodate and retain a number of different pistols having different sizes and configurations by mounting an appropriate pistol retention device that is configured for that pistol.
